    Freddie Freeman Drama

    Freddie Freeman Drama

    It's been an ongoing saga between Freddie Freeman, his agent, and the Braves and we're breaking it all down on today's episode. Joey thinks that Freeman would've signed a 5-year deal with the Braves if things had gone differently during negotiations. We're also talking Astros and whether they're the team to beat in the AL over the Yankees. Jeremy Peña becomes a big topic of discussion when Joey forgets his first name and we will be referring to him as Mr. Peña from here on out until Joey deems he has earned the right to his first name. Juan Soto contract extension numbers have leaked and we talk about his regression this year and whether that contract will be worth it. Dallas also talks about Oakland being one step closer to building a new ballpark. Jake and Jared are in Chicago to watch the Red Sox smack the Cubs so keep an eye out for video content coming from that series. Enjoy!

    Brawl In Anaheim

    Brawl In Anaheim

    It was an eventful weekend in MLB lead by a huge brawl in Anaheim. Jared and Dallas are breaking down who caused it, who was in the right, and who was in the wrong. Clayton Kershaw made comments about Freddie Freeman’s return to Atlanta that raised some questions about whether his teammates think he needs to move on from his former team. The Yankees got no-hit by the Astros and followed it up with a Judge walk-off homer the next day. They shouldn’t take it for granted either because according to Jared there’s no shot he’s staying with the Yankees. We also have a heated sunflower seed discussion between Jared and Dallas and talk about how if the playoffs started today the Red Sox would win the World Series. Enjoy!

    Shohei Ohtani > Babe Ruth Part 1

    Shohei Ohtani > Babe Ruth Part 1

    Shohei Ohtani just had one of the most dominant two-game stretches of all time hitting two 3-run homers with 8 RBI one night, and coming back the next night to pitch 8 shoutout innings with 13Ks. This dude dunks on Babe Ruth. This leads to a discussion about whether Ohtani should win MVP every year for the rest of his career and how you are supposed to weigh his value against other players. We also talk about whether Ohtani will stay in Anaheim once his contract is up. The Guardians have taken over first place in the AL Central and Jared thinks they're here to stay. Joey thinks their season is over. Dallas says the White Sox are f*****g toast and Jared think they still have a shot. We also show love to Yordan Álvarez for the monster year he's having and talk about where he stands in the AL MVP discussion. More in Part 2!

    Mike Trout Goes OFF Part 2

    Mike Trout Goes OFF Part 2

    In part 2 we're talking about the Seattle Mariners and who could be a potential lifeline to help save their season. We also talk about the Tatís and Mookie injuries, specifically who stands to be more adversely affected by each injury the Padres or the Dodgers? The Guardians have won six straight series but Dallas still thinks that they're frauds. Jared is going to put $10k on the Guardians to win the division with the DraftKings Sportsbook. Dallas also says that the A's f*****g suck which is wild because he works for the team. We round it off with Joey finally giving a little bit of credit to the Mets, Jared pointing out why Ohtani sucks, and Jake putting $20k to win $1 million on the Red Sox to win the division. Enjoy!

    Mike Trout Goes OFF Part 1

    Mike Trout Goes OFF Part 1

    Mike Trout became the first player in MLB history to hit four game-winning home runs in a single series and Dallas is fired up. This leads to a discussion about his boring shoes and begs the question why the MLB doesn't have its youngest, most exciting players pushing more of their own sneakers. Jerer Encarnación was called up to the Marlins and hit a grand slam for his first career hit in the league. Jared reminisces on José Fernández as he tends to do from time to time; this year would have been his age 30 season. The Red Sox are basically plugged into the ALCS at this point and we discuss what other AL team might join them there. Joey proposes a Bogaerts and Devers for Juan Soto trade which Jared politely declines. More in Part 2!

Enjoy the pod

Enjoy the podcast, been listening since starting 9. Good content

Get rid of Joey

Whenever Joey laughs, I think there’s a 13-year-old girl on the podcast and then I realize it was Joey giggling. It’s clear he doesn’t know much about baseball either, so he often derails the discussions when he interjects his stupid comments. Don’t know why he’s on here.

baseball is dead ,

Love this podcast

Love this podcast it’s really good and funny I recommend it
